The Smear Campaign Has Started

Praful Bidwai, the frontline pamphleteer of Frontline magazine, has set the ball rolling with a masterpiece in Khaleej Times. He's opined that the current youth unrest has been orchestrated by 'upper caste-dominated guilds like the Indian Medical Association; captains of industry and owners of private colleges, who oppose any extension of reservations even for the lowest of castes; and BJP politicians.' Go here to catch more of his cow manure.

India is burning

Young India is burning with rage. Seething with anger. The evidence is right before our eyes. Delhi simmered yesterday. Kolkata joined the revolt. Today it's Bangalore's turn. My feeling is no one in the corridors of power has realised the gravity of the situation yet. Things will get worse when they announce the petrol hike next week. And then god save Manmohan Singh...

The Silence of Sonia

The lady who listens to her inner voice has pressed the mute button, yet again. She's not said a word on the reservation issue. Not even the usual platitudes about her concern for the disadvantaged. The reasons are obvious. She wants bechaara Manmohan Singh to take all the flak. For anyone who's observed Sonia, this ain't surprising. She never opens her mouth for fear of uttering something utterly ridiculous. Perhaps that's why she never addresses press conferences or appears on camera for a candid interview. To think that we nearly made her Prime Minister...thank god for small mercies.

Modest Achievers. Immodest Egonyms.

An egonym is a pompous title bestowed on a star by sycophants who call themselves fans. Egonyms are a very common practice in Kollywood. Strangely, the stars have no shame in flashing these silly prefixes in the title cards of their movies. Here's a collection of Kollywood Egonyms culled from the internet.

'Super Star' Rajinikanth
'Supreme Star' Sarath Kumar
'Ultimate Star' Ajith
'Little Super Star' Silambarasan
'Top Star' Prashanth
'Action King' Arjun
'Indian Bruce Lee' Dhanush
'Young General' Vijay
'Revolutionary Artiste' Vijayakanth
'King of Romance' Kamal Hassan
'Revolutionary Tamilian' Satyaraj
'Hero of 9 Emotions' Karthik

Are Brahmins the Dalits of today?

A very interesting article by Francois Gautier. Sets you thinking. I can see the grist for a good documentary here.

Fun Schools

Everyone’s looking for schools with IQ these days. Nope. Not Intelligence Quotient you fool, but Interest Quotient. Burning questions like, ‘Are there enough chicks? Are the profs good looking? Is the course a no-brainer? Will 40% attendance do?’ are very germane to wannabes who hope to run in today’s rat race. In such a scenario, it may not be a bad idea if we consider offering some very stimulating education options. That’s precisely what I’ve done below.

1. The Dhirubhai Institute of Business Ethics
What you get: Post Graduate Diploma in Ethical Wealth Creation

4. Greg Chappell’s Diplomacy Academy
What you get: Diploma in Conflict Management
What you learn: The fine art of being subtly direct, drafting polished emails without mincing words, when to show the finger, using the craft of spin to bowl over the press, working towards peace by giving a piece of your mind and how to pose for pretty pictures with your mortal enemy.

Royalty Free Idea of the Month # 3

The Concept
A High Court on the net for speedy disposal of routine cases.

The Need Gap
As on 31st December 2005, nearly 3-crore cases were pending before the Supreme Court, 21 High Courts and the subordinate courts in India. Many of these cases have been gathering dust for years. There have been many reasons for this judicial clog. Lack of infrastructure, staff and budgets are some oft-quoted excuses. The Government of India has tried to resolve this mess by introducing Fast Track Courts. But as any neutral observer will tell you, Fast Track Courts are not as fast you think. They have their constraints. So clearly there’s a need for another solution.

The Solution
To break the judicial logjam, the government must institute virtual courts called the iCourts. The iCourts should be empowered to dispose off long pending cases and new suits involving minor civil disputes.

How will iCourts work?
iCourts by definition are courts on the internet. To create an iCourt, all one has to do is to commission the creation of a website that combines elements of a chatroom, bulletin board, messenger & blog. The courtroom will be a blog with a chatroom provision. Moderator of the blog will be the judge. The concerned parties will be co-opted into the blog. The lawyers from both sides will initially be allowed to state their case by posting their pre-prepared statement of arguments. Relevant documentation may be uploaded. Audio clips & Video clips may also be posted. Once the judge pores over the arguments he will post his observations. Arguments and counter arguments may be made by the relevant parties in the blog. On the day the judge wants to give his verdict, he will alert the concerned parties via the messenger and ask them to assemble in his chat room. He will question and counter question the lawyers and then post his final verdict.

What features can one expect in the iCourt site?
a) Every judge will have his own login, password, profile page, email ID and blog.
b) Every lawyer who practices in the iCourt will get a login, password and email ID.
c) For every case, a new blog will be created by a judge. Members of the blog will be the respective lawyers. The key moderator will be the judge.
d) The judge may or may not allow comments on the posts depending on the case.
e) At any point any client should be able to access the profiles of the judge, lawyers the cases they’ve handled before and their relevant case blog.
f) Each blog will have a chat room where real time arguments of the concerned parties can take place. Archive of chat transcripts can be accessed by the judge at any point in time.
g) A bulletin board will be available in the home page of the site. The bulletin board will post the day’s schedule of cases.
h) A search engine facility will be provided. One can search for judges, lawyers or case blogs using this engine.
i) The Constitution of India will be provided as a reference tool in the website. One should be able to mine the constitution using keywords.
j) News regarding transfers, appointments & cases will be available in the home page.

Who will create the iCourt program?
The Government of India can call for a pitch. The best software companies from India may be invited for the pitch. The most user friendly program may be chosen. A beta testing will have to done. Bugs have to be sorted out before the launch.

Who will fund the iCourt?
The Law Ministry of the Government of India.

Who will administer the iCourts?
For security reasons, the IT ministry may administer the iCourts website. Maintenance may be outsourced to the company that created the site.

What will be the jurisdiction of the iCourts?
Any minor civil dispute in India will be referred to the iCourts. An expert panel of judges can decide on the kind of matters that will be referred to the iCourts.

As a court of law, where can one peg the iCourts?
iCourts will enjoy as much power as a High Court. In terms of constitutional importance, it will be right below the Supreme Court.

Who can be an iCourt judge?
Retired judges from high courts & subordinate courts may be picked for this assignment. We’ll need at least 1000 odd judges for this purpose. The judges can be given a free laptop and a broadband connection. The judges will have to necessarily undergo a crash course in handling computers & the internet.

How will the judges be compensated?
The judges can be paid a consultation fee for every case cleared.

Whom will the iCourt report to?
The iCourt will come under the direct supervision of a Chief Justice who will be of Supreme Court rank. The Chief Justice will have the powers to appoint iCourt judges, monitor their performances, and will attend to high priority cases in the iCourts. The Chief Justice’s office will also double up as the iCourt Head Office. The Chief Justice will be selected by the Supreme Court.

Where can the client access the iCourts?
Since the iCourt is a virtual court, it can be accessed from anywhere in India. All one needs is a computer with an internet connection. To make such computers available in rural areas, the Government of India can tie up with cyber cafes.

How long can an iCourt take to give a verdict on a case?
Not more than 15 days.

How does one file an appeal against an iCourt verdict?
Appeals may be directed to the Supreme Court.

Won’t the legal system feel threatened?
The iCourt is no way is a threat to the legal system in India. It’s a remedy for rapid disposal of routine cases. The broad framework within which the iCourts can operate will be framed by the Supreme Court. Adequate care will be taken to ensure that the iCourts will in no way diminish the importance of any High Court. All the iCourt will do is to act as a supplement for most High Courts in India.

What’s in it for all of us?
a) To the average citizen of India, the iCourts will be the most approachable, transparent and speedy court in India. The promise of a redressal in 15 days should hold enough charm.
b) To the lawyers, it’s more cases. Hence more money.
c) To the judges of real courts, the iCourts take care of all the pesky and shitty work. So they can use their time more fruitfully on important cases.
d) To the Government of India, it’s a workable and viable legal system that solves the vexed problem of pending cases.

Why not gender based reservations?

Proponents of Mandal keep pointing to the fact that affirmative action is a just compensation for centuries of discrimination. Before we venture into a critique of this argument I suggest you pause for a moment. Take a deep breath. Close your eyes. Think of all the heinous social crimes commited by Indians in the last many centuries. What comes to mind? The image of a young lady being goaded to commit Sati? A child widow being carted away to the desolate confines of an asylum in Brindavan? The poignant picture of a female foetus in a dustbin? The photograph of a dowry victim with third degree burns? Gory footage of nubile women being pillaged in riots?

See my point? The most discriminated creature in this country is the bharatiya nari. So I'd like to know only one thing. Why the hell should we not have 50% reservations for women in all fields? Why stick with stupid Mandal? Let's have some Mahila Mandal instead.

Royalty Free Idea of the Month # 2

The Concept
A viable and transparent way to fund political parties.

The Need Gap
Funding is a huge problem for most political parties in India. Membership fee from party workers is simply inadequate to take care of the expenses. Slush money from sleazy sources and mystery suitcases from mercenary businessmen keep the parties afloat. Fund crunch forces our netas to resort to corruption. Fundex aims to plug this financial and moral void.

The Solution
Fundex or Fund Exchange will be a stock exchange specially created to mobilize public money for political parties.

What will Fundex trade in?
Fundex will trade in political stocks with no voting powers.

Who can get listed in Fundex?
Any political party recognized by the Election Commission of India.

Who will be the investors?
Mutual funds, banks, corporations, financial institutions, insurance companies, party workers and retail investors based in India.

Who will run Fundex?
The Election Commission of India will monitor Fundex with able assistance from SEBI. A special institution can be created by the parliament to run Fundex on a day to day basis.

How will Fundex work?
Any political party that wishes to raise capital will have to first declare:
a) The amount of capital required.
b) Why the money is needed.
c) What the party wishes to do with the money.
d) The financial health of the party.
e) The assets and liability base of the board of governors of the party.
f) The non-financial benefits of investing in the party.

Once this red herring prospectus has been cleared by the Election Commission, the political party will go in for an IPO. The number of Non Voting Shares (NVS) on offer and the denomination of each NVS will be announced. The listing procedures will be very similar to that of the National Stock Exchange.

Once the IPO has been successful, the NVS can be electronically traded in Fundex. Investors can buy & sell the political stocks either directly or through brokers authenticated by SEBI.

Since the investor is entitled to no voting rights and financial dividends, the only source of revenue for the investor is going to be through stock trading.

So Fundex will in essence be a trading exchange for political stocks of all hues.

The stocks will move up or down depending upon the performance of the party through out the year.

What’s in it for the political parties?
1. Potentially unlimited source of funds through out the year.
2. Full time party workers can actually be paid salaries with this money.
3. Party members can be allotted PSOPS (Party Stock Options).
4. Dependence on slush funds decreases.
5. No need to humour businessmen who help the party.
6. The financial brokers who control the party will now lose their sheen. The true blue organization men and mass leaders will have control over the party.
7. The small party needn’t fear the money power of the big party.

What’s in it for the investor?
1. An active stake in the political future of India.
2. Monetary gain by trading in political stocks.
3. A chance to fund the parties you like.
4. Income tax / corporate tax deductions.
5. No harassment from party goons for funds.

What’s in it for the general public?
1. A Lok Paritran has as much a chance of mobilizing funds as the Congress (I).
2. More transparency in politics. As in, parties will have to issue annual reports stating their achievements & financial transactions for the year.
3. An opportunity to make political parties more accountable. What I mean is, earlier parties used to listen to voters once in 5 years; now they’ll have to do it almost everyday. Otherwise the party stock will take a plunge in the Fundex.
4. Lesser corruption.

What are the checks & balances to make Fundex work?
1. An external audit of the statement of accounts of political parties by auditors who report to the Election Commission.
2. A daily circuit breaker to control excessive speculation on political stocks.
3. A hawk eye on the kind of investors pumping money into the political parties.
4. The National Vigilance Commission should be given powers to probe any complaints on misappropriation of funds.

Vital Stats of the Tamil Nadu Polls

If you wanna know the real story, just pore over these numbers:

Votes polled by DMK Alliance: 44.6% (163 seats)
DMK - 26.5% (96 seats)
Congress - 8.4%(34 seats)
PMK - 5.4% (18 seats)
CPM - 2.7% (9 seats)
CPI - 1.6% (6 seats)

Votes polled by AIADMK Alliance: 39.8% (69 seats)
AIADMK - 32.5% (61 seats)
MDMK - 6.0% (6 seats)
DPI - 1.3% (2 seats)

Votes polled by DMDK aka Vijayakanth's party: 8.33% (1 seat)
Brilliant performance for a new comer.To score more or less the same votes as the Congress and to emerge as the No.4 party in Tamil Nadu after beating the likes of MDMK, PMK, BJP, CPM & CPI is no mean achievement! It is to be remembered that DMDK played spoiler to the AIADMK alliance in 92 seats. While it affected the chances of the DMK alliance in 43 seats.

Votes polled by BJP: 2%
BJP lost nearly 1.2% votes in this election. This after getting Thirunavukarassar on board. BJP also lost 4 seats. It fared well in Colachel, Hosur, Killiyur, Madurai East, Padmanabhapuram, Pudukottai, Thirumayam, Thiruvattar, Vilavancode & Nagercoil.

Votes polled by Lok Paritran: 0.11%
Excellent performance by any standards. In Anna Nagar, LP finished third with 11665 votes. In Mylapore, again LP finished third with 9436 votes. In T.Nagar, LP stood fourth, polling 6323 votes. Contrast this with BJP's performance. In Anna Nagar, BJP scored 7897 votes. In Mylapore, BJP supported Chandralekha got 2898 votes. In T.Nagar, the BJP supported Mukta Srinivasan got just 4234 votes.

Forward Block polled 0.3% while SP got 0.2%. BSP aka Pudhiya Tamizhagam bested these parties by polling 0.8%.

DMK lost 4%, PMK lost 0.2%, ADMK, MDMK, DPI & CPM gained 1% each. Congress gained a significant 6%.

To sum up, the DMK alliance beat AIADMK alliance by 5% points and ended up winning 94 more seats. For all the hype, AIADMK was able to bring no additional votes to the table compared to the Lok Sabha election. So the reason for Amma's defeat squarely rests on her shoulders. The benefits of her performance and her goodwill among women was felt only in Chennai, Coimbatore and Madurai. My gut feel is she lost a significant chunk of votes to Vijaykanth's party. The same is the case with Karunanidhi.

Note: I was bang on with DMK's vote percentage. But was off mark by 3% while predicting the ADMK votes.

Facts courtesy: Election Commission.

A Smart Strategy That Failed

PMK adopted a very clever strategy against actor Vijayakanth in the Vridhachalam assembly poll. The vanniar party fielded 3 other Vijayakanths in the same constituency. The idea was to confuse the illiterate voters. Thankfully the voters weren't as dumb. The real (or should I say reel) Vijayakanth won by nearly 14000 votes. Here's the final tally for the Vijayakanths:

A.Vijayakanth DMDK 61337
C.Vijayakanth IND 1174
A.Vijayakanth IND 589
K.Vijayakanth IND 832

Royalty Free Idea of the Month # 1

The Product
The Salesman, a fornightly magazine.

The Concept
The Salesman will be a marketing magazine seen from the point of view of sales people. Topics covered will include sales wars, retail audits, great salesmen, distributors, sales networks, launches, personal selling, interesting below the line communication, advertising that worked in the market, marketing concepts simplified, logistics management, technology & salesmen, multi level marketing & innovative salesmanship. The magazine will adopt a simple and racy style rather than sound like a serious journal.

The Target Audience
a) Salesmen
b) Distributors & franchisees
c) Marketing professionals
d) Students who wish to specialise in marketing

The Pricing
20 Rupees per issue.

Why The Salesman will be a success
1) Sales people travel a lot. And they have nothing much to do during this travel. They buy a lot of magazines for timepass. If it's a relevant magazine offering useful information, there's no reason why they won't buy it.
2) The marketing literacy of sales people is low. So anything that enlightens will sell.
3) Salespeople are a huge untapped market in India. All the business magazines and newspapers talk only to the top management.
4) Distributors & retailers again are a much ignored segment. Any magazine that celebrates them is bound to be embraced. At least by the literate distributors.
5) Marketing organisations currently rely on their own salesforce for news on market shares. An objective third party opinion will be welcomed with open arms.

Who will win the Tamil Nadu polls?

To arrive at the winner, I shall use a little arithmetic. Assumptions are based on news reports and my own instinct.

Total votes polled = 100

Number of votes garnered by Lok Paritran, Forward Block & T. Rajendar's Party = 1

Number of votes polled by BJP = 1.5

Number of votes polled by Pudhiya Tamizhagam = 0.5

Number of votes polled by independents and others = 2

Net votes left = 95

Number of votes vijay kanth's party will poll = 7 to 9.

Net votes left = 86 to 88.

Number of votes Vaiko + Dalit Panthers & others are expected to pull = 4

Number of votes AIADMK will poll = 39

Number of votes AIADMK front will poll = 39 + 4 = 43.

Number of votes remaining 43 to 45.

If Vijay Kanth polls 9, DMK will end up with 45 votes.

If Vijay Kanth polls 7, DMK will end up with 43.

Either way, DMK front might just pip AIADMK in the polls.

May 11th will tell us how wrong I was with my forecast.

Mandal Loophole?

The 93rd Constitutional Ammendment passed by the parliament reads: Nothing in this article shall prevent the state from making any provision by law, for the advancement of any educationally backward classes of citizens or for the Scheduled Castes or Scheduled Tribes insofar as such special provisions relate to their admission to educational institutions, including private educational institutions, whether aided or unaided by the state, other than minority educational institutions referred to in Clause (1) of Article (30).

It's amply clear that the ammendment mandates reservations for the educationally backward and not for socially backward classes. I'd like you to make a mental note of this fact. This my friend, is the legal loophole we were praying for. Any affirmative action by the Government of India that deviates from the spirit of the above law, can be challenged in the Supreme Court. And my gutfeel is as always, the Supreme Court will bail us out.
